    The Supreme Court Refuses To Hear Concealed Carry Cases

    No news isn't always good news, particularly if one lives in or spends time in may issue states:

    Constitution Check: Is the Supreme Court only willing to work at the fringes of the Second Amendment?

    SCOTUS= supreme chickens of the United States

    Fine, you wanna not visit it? GIVE A REASON.

    Even if it's a lie, or if it's a bad brief, or they just opened a new Dunkin Donuts. Or, more likely... we are afraid to do it... but it's okay, we made corporations people, and they can buy the legislature...

    Second amendment is too plainly stated...

    Only one logical conclusion for them to arrive at...

    So...

    Just don't hear any cases that will substantiate the 2nd.

    This is pretty much what I was thinking. Why make a ruling when they can just kick the can down the road for another Court to decide.

    A couple of Obama appointments to the SCOTUS and there is no Second Amendment for individuals.

    Justice Antonin Scalia, writing for the majority in Heller, "said that a higher level of scrutiny must be applied when judging restrictions on constitutional rights, especially fundamental ones."

    Alan Gura said, “If the Court doesn’t address the issue, then the Second Amendment is largely a dead letter — it would become mostly unenforceable because there is no such thing as a gun law for which the legislature or police can’t offer a hypothetical justification.”

    The jury is in. 2A applies to individuals. Every state now has a permitting process. The fear mongers are wrong. Responsible citizens can trust each other.

    SCOTUS is giving tacit support to states in violation of its ruling on our freedom enshrined in 2A.

    2A doenst grant the right to keep and bear. What we give up as a nation in the way of fundamental and inalienable rights is up to the people of this Nation, not SCOTUS.

    The supreme court has limited time to hear a lot of cases. They've heard several 2A cases in recent years. They don't tend to stay on the same subject for too long. They make decisions and move on to something else. If in a few years a case comes that offers something they haven't yet ruled on they'll hear it. But expecting them to become a champion for our pet cause above all the other issues that come before the court is just too much. It won't happen, nor should it.

    It doesn't have to be the SCOTUS. The Attorney General has the power to enforce the constitution as it is written. So far none have done so. They serve at the discretion of the president, and therefore support his views or they are asked to leave. The only way this will change is if we ever get a pro 2nd amendment president who is unafraid to do whats right for the country.

    The "robes" are deathly afraid of acknowledging "not" actually means not, that they shall not allow any infringements (as written).

    Too educated to know what's right, what was intended, what slippery slope has been leveraged since 1791 by the liberty haters, and to what degree they're contributing to the destruction by being the paid servants of said liberty haters. Disgusting.

    Agreed Ghost ...the right to defend yourself from death and great bodily harm is an inalienable right the world over we just bothered to put it down on paper in this country.It will not go away just because a bunch of crusty old farts in black robes get to pick and chose what they want to grumble over.

    Yes, so long as they fail to understand basic language (as in, 'not' means just that), anything is possible.

    More's the pity.
